Wildlife Bonus

September 8, 2019 at 7:41 pm

During the last couple of weeks we have seen the successful results of endless hours spent in a hide or under a camouflage cloth waiting for Kingfishers or Long Eared Owls. In truth you are not always successful and on many occasions you go home frozen and without taking a photo. However, while you are out there in the wilds other forms of wildlife come within reach of the camera and is always worth a photo – if only to relieve the boredom!! All of this week’s gallery photos, together with the Whitethroats in the blog, were taken while I was hidden away waiting for something else!
Luck does not always go your way – one night I was under the camouflage cloth waiting for the Long Eared Owl when I heard alarm calls from Carrion Crows. I looked down the forest ride but there was nothing – had I looked up the ride I would have seen an Osprey being mobbed by Carrion Crows and all three eventually flew over my head, with my camera still trained on a fence post waiting for the Owl!!’ Click here
